Each year Literacy Volunteers of Greater Worcester helps adults from all walks of life, all with different needs, become more comfortable with the English language. We challenge our students to dream, we are proud of all their accomplishments and we look forward to helping many more in the very near future.
Student Profile – Bijan Mohammadi
My name is Bijan Mohammadi. I was born in Iran and grew up in Germany, where I got a BS degree in Electrical Engineering. I have worked in the field of logistics automation for the shipping and auto parts industry as a technical support specialist for more than 12 years. I got married in Worcester, MA. My wife and I have a daughter who is going into kindergarten this year. We decided to live and work in Massachusetts. I arrived in the US late in 2012. After a week a got a part time job at Burlington Coat Factory.
Through Literacy Volunteers, I got an English Tutor (Gary Tuthill) and we have worked together for over a year. Gary not only teaches me the English language but also US culture. He was a great help to me in finding a new job as a technical support representative, which is closer to my work experience. Thanks to my wife and our hard work the past two years, we recently bought a new house that we like very much!
